You Think It’s Bad Now…

It’s going to get much worse, writes former Federal Cabinet minister, Joe Oliver:
“What explains the Ontario Liberal government’s $7 billion Climate Change Action Plan, which will infringe on people’s freedom, impose debilitating costs, set impossible targets and fail to produce meaningful reductions in GHG emissions? The only answer can be ideological fervour, divorced from economic or practical reality.” …
“This is not hyperbole. Bonnie Lysyk, the provincial auditor general, has set out the crushing burden of the government’s catastrophic blunders to date: $37 billion wasted on electricity above market price during the past eight years ($2,700 for each Ontario man, woman and child) with a further $132 billion to be racked up by 2032. Clearly, we are a peaceable kingdom, otherwise, a mob of outraged citizens would have by now gathered at Queen’s Park with pitchforks, demanding the immediate resignation of their failed nanny-state government.”

No surprises here. “But in Ontario, tens of billions of dollars wasted on partisan skulduggery and ideological obsessions barely register on the political radar.”

The Wynne-lose ideological franchise is a shocker: “Regardless, it is now going to get even worse. According to reports detailing the leaked climate plan, the premier praises it as “a transformation of how we look at our planet … that will forever change how we live, work, play and move.” This sounds like the boldest attempt to re-engineer society since Mao’s Cultural Revolution. Ironically, that revolution’s 50-year anniversary was greeted by official silence in China the same week as the climate leak.”  

A plan worthy of Chairman McGuinty!!!

Homes heated by electricity and geo-thermal (which can’t heat to more than 20 degrees without electric backup heaters), then all buildings eventually heated the same way (an impossible task), a ban on natural gas (since denied), new vehicles electric or hybrid, gasoline engines will be rationed, cap and trade (you can’t pollute but you can trade credits for a licence to do so). The Federal NDP lept into absurdity with it’s new Leap policy, Wynne-lose wants to outdo them and leap beyond the future into the Void..

High taxes, rampant over-regulation, punishing power prices are killing and have killed much of the Ontario economy, health care is dying a slow death. Cui bono? Liberal Party hacks and backers, anybody who buys the climate change, the world is warming baloney. AND, as the Wynne Turbines have already proved: “The beneficiaries of our misfortune are Americans who buy our energy below cost and attract job-creating investments chased from Ontario.”

Ontario Green Energy Policies and Legislation are unconscionable and unconstitutional, why is there no Constitutional Reference case before the courts?

EDIT: There is a Reference regarding Prince Edward County proceeding slowly through the courts. See Comment below by Garth Manning.

Wynne Turbine Carnage Continues

Health Officer [Dr. Janice Owens]  Dismissed:
One of the health unit’s initiatives since her appointment has been a study of the possible health effects of wind farms in Huron County, which has some of the largest turbine installations in the province.
Hessel [Mayor} said Owen’s departure was unrelated to the wind farm issue and that work would be carried on by health unit staff.

BTW, the last HO was also dismissed…  Is the Mayor on the take?  Oh, sure, not related! In a pig’s patootie!

Multi-Billion Dollar Boondoggle

“Queen’s Park is betting heavily that conservation programs will provide an effective and low-cost means of managing power needs in the coming decades,” they write. “Unfortunately, Ontario energy plans rely on unsubstantiated and overly-optimistic claims. We closely examine(d) the analyses behind the province’s ‘Conservation First’ plans, and find either an absence of credible data, or overly-optimistic numbers based on methodologies known to be unreliable.”, Toronto Sun, Lorrie Goldstein column.

The authors of this observation are Tom Adams and Ross McKitrick, in their report, “Demand Side Mismanagement: How Conservation Became Waste”, wherein they also say the Government’s official propaganda about spending billions to save billions more, when challenged, met with this answer: “The government replied “external financial audits were not performed on these programs,” and the rest of the information given was too vague to assess the government’s claims.”

Industrial Wynne Turbines are a wonder to behold, a boon to the province and a comfort to consumers.  The wasted billions will go down in history as a testament to the Wynne-lose Government’s “competence.”

NOTWITHSTANDING…

…we now live in The Province of Toronto (Mayor Cameron McWilliam, Dutton-Dunwich, per Ottawa Wind Concerns), the Wynne-lose government is ignoring all the municipal councils supporting the Wainfleet Resolution asking the government to stop issuing more F.I.T. contracts.

Dutton-Dunwich Referendum says, “No”, gov’t says,, tough luck and awards contracts to wind developers (OWR, from the London Free Press –

The Ontario government had repeatedly assured McWilliam and other rural leaders that the wishes of local residents would be respected in a new era of public consultation.
In testimony before a legislature committee in November 2013, Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli said municipalities wouldn’t be given a veto over projects but it would be “very rare indeed” for any to be approved without municipal backing.
“It will be almost impossible for somebody to win one of those bidding processes without an engagement with the municipality,” Chiarelli said.

It’s getting on to Spring, and getting warmer, and the SNAKES are coming out. Unwilling Hosts getting hosed.

Wind Turbines and Broken Wings

Quixote’s Last Stand advises us of a new website devoted to the problem of bird deaths and Industrial Wynne Turbines>: Birds and Blades, aka, Broken Wing is also a book that details the epidemic of bird kills by turbines. The book outlines 5 positions on the issue of bird deaths and turbines:
1.Wind turbines are an ancillary source of power generation.
2.Avian deaths are unacceptable results of wind turbine growth.
3.Alternative technology solutions are abundant and available.
4.Government mandates distort the wind market.
5.Human illness and death are direct results of wind energy.

Wainfleet, Hit Again

Construction impact [OWR] of Wynne Turbines hitting home in Wainfleet [Port Colborne Leader – Read article].

“There is no notice,” said Concession 6 property owner LeaAnne Robins, who has seen construction devastate roadside trees in front of her property. “They’ve massacred all the 80-year-old oaks on the road,” she said, explaining she expects construction of transmission towers to follow the clear cutting.

Construction has repeatedly blocked access at the north end of the road, forcing residents to take long detours.
“The school bus won’t even come down the road,” said Scott Murphy, whose four-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter now have to walk about a half kilometer through a construction zone to catch the bus.
“At one time they had both ends of the road blocked,” said Murphy, adding he is concerned that in an emergency situation first responders may be delayed or even prevented in reaching the area.

In olden days, it was called rape and pillage: rape of the land and pillage of property!
The leader of the gang is the person for whom the IWT’s are named: Industrial Wynne Turbines.

Greed Energy runs roughshod over rights and responsibilities, doing things even Hydro wouldn’t or couldn’t legally do.

Earth Does Not Get The Message

“Countries and companies around the globe have spent trillions of dollars to stop the Earth from warming and the Earth did not get the message, it responded by cooling. Not to worry, environmentalists who were blatantly wrong and tried to say that cooling is part of global warming, changed their golden goose agenda to climate change. Even though climate change is real, it is called seasons, critics of the climate change industry, of climatism, have been marginalized under the rubric of global warming heretic deniers.”
Climate Change Industry Depletes the Energy Market (Quixotes Last Stand) a report By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh August 12, 2015

“World leaders, politicians, corporations, universities, and NGOs have been captivated by the climate change industry even though the theory of global warming has failed miserably and all the climate models were proven wrong. They declared war on fossil fuels and waged it with a vengeance at the expense of taxpayers and electricity users.”

“Dr. Steve Goreham, Executive Director of the Climate Science Coalition of America, and author of Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism, described the collateral damage from the war on hydrocarbons using Europe as an example of an “energy disaster unfolding.” He said, “there are 487 national climate change laws in 66 nations” and they are hurting the economies of those respective countries.”
Even though IPCC said that “burning biomass is carbon neutral,” the reality is that biofuels release as much or more carbon dioxide than coal does. And the trading of carbon on the carbon markets is failing. People can pay all the carbon footprint taxes in the world and it will not make a bit of difference in the actual CO2 in the atmosphere. It will just make the traders and the companies richer.”

“Dr. Goreham also mentioned that some countries imported wood from Alabama to burn as electricity generator instead of dirty coal. The Green Revolution has been so expensive for Europeans that subsidies were dropping in every area, followed by layoffs in the renewable industry. The wind industry in the U.S. gets 2.3 cents per kWh in tax credit in order to compete.”…

“Dr. Fred Singer, physicist and emeritus professor of environmental science at the University of Virginia, reminded us that the climate change industry does not take into account the CO2 emissions from operation and maintenance of renewables such as how often these devices must be replaced (solar panels, wind turbines, parts, lubricants), and the transmission costs. Wind and solar power does emit CO2 in the construction process, during the mining of the metals used, lubricants, etc.” 

Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh concludes:
“Honest scientists say that we have enough fossil fuels reserves for centuries of use. In the world’s economy renewables should compete without subsidies, we should worry about the Smart Grid’s vulnerability from hackers, solar flares, and EMPs, we should conserve energy wisely, protect nature sensibly, and let the carbon credits scheme go into the trash bin of expensive hustles.”
the enemy of man is man (the full article)

Thus the CLIMATISM that is provoking a coming cataclysm in contemporary history, all in the name of subsidies, carbon credits, contracts, wind and solar developers, naive or stupid politicians, elections and re-elections, political legacies, human greed, and global wishful thinking in the name of money.

Tell all of us deniers what the absolute perfect climate is, so that no species ever goes extinct again, so that all flora and fauna flourish, so that we can tell the earth to stop changing her climate….something she’s done naturally for billions of years…..and stay at exactly the levels that you have decreed to be perfect for all life on planet earth.)

Are the Wynne-lose Liberals Destroying Evidence…

Globe and Mail, Richard Blackwell
An offshore wind farm developer that is in the midst of a lawsuit against the province of Ontario is now accusing the Liberal government of destroying documents related to its case.

Trillium spent years and millions of dollars developing plans for an offshore wind farm in Lake Ontario near Kingston, but it had the rug pulled out from under it in February, 2011, when the province said it would not consider any offshore development until more scientific studies were done. The decision came the same day Trillium was to sign a large financing deal.

However, in 2013 the Ontario Court of Appeal said the company could go ahead with one specific allegation, that the government’s decision amounted to “malfeasance in public office.”

Among Trillium’s evidence for the destruction of documents, its court filing says, is that some of the communications the company had with the government are “nowhere to be found in the [government’s] documentary productions.”

DOES ANY OF THIS really surprise you?  You can win and lose with the Ontario government in the Green Energy scam.
